Bengals players and coaches among the NFL’s most interesting 2018 storylines
Bengals players and coaches among the NFL’s most interesting 2018 storylines More Believe it or not, the 2018 season is a pivotal campaign in the direction of the Cincinnati Bengals franchise. Most believe that the team will fare poorly, but we’ve seen them rise out of the depths of mediocrity to get to the postseason in the recent past. If they are to rise from the ashes again this year, it’s going to take exceptional performances from some of the major figures in the franchise and the fulfilling of a lot of if’s. If history has taught us anything, a number of high-profile people will be the ones who carry this team to greatness. According to ESPN and their take on the most influential NFL faces of 2018, the Bengals have a likely trio who made their list.
Boone was an ESPN analyst from 2010 until taking over the Yankees’ manager job last December.
The change happened Friday a day after the Yankees and Orioles rescheduled Thursday’s rainout at Camden Yards for Monday, July 9, creating a single-admission doubleheader that will start at 4:05 p.m.
Boone didn’t like that the Yankees would have to play a game so late at night before traveling to a new city to immediately play a doubleheader.
Honestly, I feel like I’m the best tight end in the league in all phases, Walker said, via the Tennessean. Blocking, run blocking, catching the ball, breaking tackles, stuff like that. At the end of the day, if you don’t feel like that you shouldn’t be in the league.
Walker didn’t break 30-plus receptions or six-plus touchdowns until his age-29 season of 2013. He didn’t crack 800 yards receiving until he was 30 years old. But he was spending much of his time as a secondary option in a San Francisco offense that also included star tight end Vernon Davis.
All that blocking and lack of attention might have paid off for Walker, who’s helped clear the way for a 1,200-yard rusher in DeMarco Murray (in 2016) and his successor, Derrick Henry. And that’s the less-heralded half of his play. The tight end who was once a secondary option at best in San Francisco has grown into a bonafide star in Tennessee, catching at least 63 passes and recording 800 or more yards receiving in all but one of his five seasons with the Titans.
